All Kinds of Magic: One Man's Search for Meaning Across the Modern World

Author(s): Piers Moore Ede

Travel Memoir

Disheartened by a world seemingly hooked on material wealth and scientific fact, Piers Moore Ede decided to travel the world in search of something completely other - the magical, the mystical, the numinous. In 'All Kinds of Magic', Piers recounts this voyage of re-enchantment, which led him from the Himalayas to the banks of the Ganges.
